Can the English Language Take Care of Itself? A Dialogue.
Redfern, Richard K.
English Journal, v90 n4 p60-66 Mar 2001
Presents a (fictional) conversation between a college English professor and a graduate student in English who is something of a purist about the language. Shows, in conversations across a semester and a half, her changing attitudes about the rules of good English, "purity" in the language, divided usage, and confusing grammar and usage. (SR)
